Simple Basketball Request
Jared had one simple request when it came to his senior photos, he wanted his basketball with him. I love it when students identify with something so much that it becomes a part of who they are. Basketball is definitely that thing for Jared. We were able to find a park that had a court and it worked so well to have his session at the Oshtemo Township Park. I actually love photography there and would go back for any session.
Basketball and Cars
I photographed Jared’s brother last year, and it’s so funny how siblings can be so different. Jared loves basketball and his brother loved his vintage car. I tried to find his images on my blog, and guess what? I never posted them. Probably because he is a boy!
Parents Did It Right
I have to say, their parents are doing something right because both boys were incredibly kind and easy to work with. The kind of family that I know will stick with me through all of the life of events that need to be photographed. Basketball and all.
More Boys In 2021
I don’t typically show a lot of boys, or basketball, on my blog or my Instagram account. I think that is pretty intentional. I have a niche in the senior market, specifically with girls. More specifically, with girls who enjoy hair and makeup and clothes. I find those girls generally pass by the pictures of boys pretty quickly. So I just don’t post them. But as I photographed more and more boys each year, I feel like I’m leaving out part of who I am as a photographer. So, you may see a few more boys on either my blog or my Instagram account to show that I actually do photograph them. In 2021, boys are a bigger part of my calendar and I love it.
Value of Good Photography
A lot of the boys that I photograph are siblings of either senior girls that I photographed or their moms understand the value of good photography. I appreciate all of my clients for understanding what my photography is worth.
If you know of a senior, a boy or a girl who needs photos this year, send them my way because I like to have people who value photography as my clients. Anyone can contact me HERE for a session request.
